Louis Vuitton have sold out of their £36,500 bathrobe inspired coat, which forms part of its home and garden-themed new season collection.

Despite the hefty price tag, and the fact that it’s crafted from 100 per cent mink, it seems shoppers haven’t let the coronavirus pandemic affect their appetite for luxury fashion – even if no one will see it. 

Along with the ‘Flags Intarsia Mink Coat’, which is sold out in every size and takes 200 hours to craft, the fashion house is selling a matching scarf at an eye-watering £23,9000, and gardening-themed  ‘Landscape Ankle Boots’ at £1,240, all designed by Artistic Director Virgil Abloh.

The description for the coat reads: ‘Cut in a loose-fitting ‘bathrobe’ style, this Flags Intarsia Mink Coat is all about the season’s Flagification technique: the crafting of national emblems into one inclusive patchwork.’

And the scarf follows the same flag-inspired theme, hinting at togetherness post-Brexit. 

The description reads: ‘This generously sized piece showcases various flags, reflecting the nationalities of workers in Virgil Abloh’s studio.’

Meanwhile the boots are described as a ‘key look of Louis Vuitton’s Spring-Summer 2020 Men’s Show’.

The description reads:’ Crafted from white calf leather and Monogram-embossed neoprene, they interpret the season’s gardening theme through their functional shape and treaded rubber outsoles’. 

Perhaps not the most convenient colour for actual gardening, the boots have still proven to be a success, and are currently sold out in every size. 

Among the new season collection are gardening-themed 'Landscape Ankle Boots' at £1,240.00, all designed by Artistic Director Virgil Abloh
